    I was in Shreveport last week at a conference where some St. Aug folks were in attendance and the indication there was that he is a HARD Bama lean. They felt like our best shot was what you said Bhelm...that the number of big-time recruits headed there would steer him in-state. They also felt he would not go anywhere else aside from Bama or LSU and felt that once he commits he will be solid. They seem to believe he will commit early but still enjoy the visits process. One guy said he's an LSU fan but career wise, he prefers a Ingram/Richardson or Richardson/Lacy style backfield share rather than 4-5 guys splitting carries.

    Local folks in his ear are trying to sell him on being fresher for the NFL because of fewer carries in college due to the bigger split. He's not worried about competing for championships because he feels that opportunity will be there at either school so that's a given. But for personal accolades, he does want the opportunity for Heismann consideration and feels Bama gives him the best chance for that. We can't really argue that given recent history.

    They claim he knows he can't really go wrong either way and he's not likely to redshirt at either school.

    I don't think LSU has in recent years had 1 or 2 running backs that were head and shoulders better than everyone else, thus the 4-headed monster. If we had a heisman quality running back, I believe the 4-headed monster would be slayed.

    I disagree, in that all of the backs that make up the current 4-headed monster all have the potential to be Heisman candidates if they were in the right system and the featured back in that system.

    Not only that, but maybe the best of all of our stable of running backs is playing the least.

    You're right about that. Alfred Blue is out injured.

    ParadiseiNC don't worry, be happy

    Think he meant Hilliard, but you may know that and were just being sarcastic.

    Yes, I think Hilliard is our best uninjured RB.

    The RB with the most yardage & 2nd best YPC, has gotten nearly 20 more carries than the other RBs. Jeremy Hill currently has the best YPC, after the South Carolina win, and he got the most carries in that game.

    Ummm, maybe not.
